2018 Bible as Lit

#2018BibleRBR Daily Reading Plan: May

Here is my daily reading schedule for May. We will essentially finish up the section of the bible typically classified as the “History of Israel” (which ends with Esther). In June, we move on to the “Books of Wisdom.”

As mentioned in the original post, this month the reading plan is 1 Chronicles 3 through Esther 10. As always, feel free to read ahead, fall behind, or jump around. I’ll be back again every Sunday with my thoughts on that week’s reading. On May 31, I’ll post the daily reading plan for June!.

The Reading Plan for May:

I look forward to sharing my thoughts on the stories and literary elements of the Bible, as I see them, and I am especially eager to hear what you all find in your own explorations. As a reminder, this is a secular reading of the bible as literature, so any/all respectful thoughts and opinions are welcome. In my opinion, the more perspectives we have, the better!
